Stop, drop and stare. I got looks all night in this show stopper!
This dress was beautiful! It's a little more pink than the pic shows, which was gorgeous in person. I was really impressed that all the zillion sequins seemed to be still in tact! I have also rented two other versions of this dress (the long, formal one with identical coloring and this style in navy), and I highly recommend both of those as well. This piece was comfy all night, even though sequins normally scratch your arms, I had a pashmina and didn't notice any irritation. Under direct light, the dress has a little disco ball effect. Would definitely recommend this stunner! I taped the cleavage a little to be slightly more conservative and I preferred that look. I am pear-shaped and sometimes have to size up to allow room for my hips and caboose, but not with this dress. It's true to size and since the skirt isn't form fitting and the fabric has some ruching and give, I looked better in the smaller of the sizes I got. If you're a pear, you might want to do the same. My only minor complaint was that the bottom of the zipper (in the lining of the dress in the back) stuck out, making it poke up under the dress. I think this was a dry cleaning issue with the one dress I received, as I did not have this same issue with the other versions of the dress. I just taped it down with masking tape to keep it from poking out like I had a tail, but once taped, the dress looked great.

The dress was super comfortable and super gorgeous. I got soo many compliments!!
Amazing dress!! True to size and fit like a dream!! It looks light pink or a little gold in different light, but it always looks beautiful! I was so incredibly pleased with this choice! It truly is a SHOWSTOPPER and I got tons of compliments! It is also extremely comfortable and easy to wear. I would highly recommend renting this dress for your event! I wore it to "Black Tie" and it was perfect!

Sparkly, fun, and definitely noticeable! This dress runs true to size, if not even a little large (I ordered the 2 and 4 and wore the 2). There is appropriate coverage for a larger bust, and my only complaint is that it was a little too long.

I received soooo many compliments on this dress at my law school formal. Complete strangers came up to me. It was very cool. Definitely recommend this dress.
Amazing Dress! I have a DD chest and kim kardashian booty and this dress made the curves look great. I didn't feel over-revealed in the chest either. Very comfortable. Easy to dance in. Received tons of compliments...even from complete strangers. Definitely recommend the dress.

I usually wear a 4 because of my larger bust, and this dress ate me up! I think you need to be taller than 5'6" for it to be anywhere near the way it looks in the picture. Also the neckline is much less revealing than in the picture, it's a little strange how closed the V is and how high it comes. I had to fix both the hem and the neckline with fashion tape, but it still wasn't very flattering. It's also a deeper color and more sparkly than the picture.

UNFLATTERING
The dress is gorgeous but the gathering in the front is unflattering. I rented the dress but had to take a pass on it because the dress made me look full figured in the front middle.

Wore this to a wedding!! Got so many compliments from both men and women. My hubby usually hates sequins but when he said he liked this dress, that was the best compliment. One woman at our table kept telling her husband "I want that dress!" The fit was perfect, the color is more of a blush pink in person- very pretty and the length worked for me- wore my 5 inch nude pumps. Was very sad to return this one!!! I'll definitely use RTR again!!

While the glittery sequins make this dress a ton of fun - and would stop the show in that regard - it definitely made me look larger than I am. I am almost always a 2 and wish I had ordered the 0 as a back up instead of the 4, though I think the problem is that there just is too much fabric on the bottom. Otherwise, a great dress and a ton of fun. Was also worried that it would show too much cleavage, but the chest is much more conservative than the picture would suggest.

This dress is definitely a show stopper! I rented for my birthday party and everyone loved it, I received SO many compliments. Like many have already mentioned, it is more pink than shown here. But not a problem for me as that is my favorite color! If you don't have a bust larger than B, this may not be the dress for you. The V is not as deep as shown on the model, which for me was a great thing.

I originally ordered this, but it did not fit me well. I felt there was too much excess material in the front that gave an unflattering appearance. Also, the sequins can scratch your arms.This is a dress for someone very thin. Lovely color, more pink than gold.

I didnt end up wearing this because it was rather long (it hit below my knee). Also, it is less revealing up top then the picture shows. Would be a great dress for a family holiday party or something.

Wore this dress for my 30th birthday in Vegas. Received many compliments. It is a bit longer than I anticipated - I'm 5'8" and it went to my knees but it is flattering and fun. I endearingly called myself a "disco ball" because the sequins shimmered off every light.

I rented this dress for my birthday and it was amazing. I felt like a movie star and couldn't walk 5 feet down the street without getting compliments from strangers. Highly recommended. It's a little long for someone who is 5'3" (hit at my knees) but I just folded up the hem with wardrobe tape. The bustline is not as revealing as the picture shows but it's very flattering for someone with a larger bust. You can wear a regular bra with this dress. The fabric has some give to it, although it's not stretchy, and it's a swingy dress. So beautiful, I wish I owned it!

I absolutely love this dress. It is pinker than photos, definitely. But there's so much sparkle and glamour to this dress, you feel kind of like an old Hollywood movie star.Not to mention, when the lighting is right, the dress throws sparkles around like a disco ball. lt was a great dress for any occasion; however be warned that the dress is about scratchy and rough so cover your skin. Anywho, this is a great dress for any type of body, (even plus sized ones!) and emphasizes the right curves.

This was an amazing dress. I wore it to a black-tie charity gala and received compliments all night from friends and complete strangers. I followed the other reviews and used fashion tape to hem it up an inch and to pull the V neckline down a bit more. I am a big 4, small 6 normally and the 4 fit perfectly, if not a little big in the chest (hence the tape). Closer to light pink, rose color. I wore champagne shoes. Wonderful dress, you will definitely be noticed.

Rented this dress for a wedding in Vegas. The dress is exactly as it says...a total showstopper. Sparkly and Bright. So pretty. Tons and tons of compliments. The dress gave a disco ball effect which put all eyes on me. Ran true to size and not too low cut. I was able to wear my bra underneath without a problem. Not as short as in this photo. She must be tall. It was classy and beautiful!

Amazing dress! I usually am between a 10 and 12 in most clothes from J.Crew, but the 10 on this fit well, and maybe was a little big. Really accentuates the waist, and so easy to wear. Really comfortable too! I wore this for my bachelorette party and got compliments all night. Love it!

The name really does say it all. Just wore this for my bachelorette party and was complimented by complete strangers! It definitely sparkles and makes people take notice when you walk in the room. I'm typically a size 2 but the size 0 worked better for me.It hit just above my knee and wasn't too revealing at the bust. It was comfortable and I was also able to wear a regular bra with it - a hug plus in my book. It is so beautiful I hated parting with it yesterday. Would recommend to anyone! Thanks RTR!

Great show stopper dress however big! I wear a 4 for most dresses and the 2 was the one I went with and could have done the 0. Very long--i used fashion tape and i'm 5'11. so short girls, get another dress if you want a mini!

This dress stopped stranges off the street to say how beautiful it was or how much they really liked it. I fet comfortable in it and it fit my curves in all the right spots. I recommend this dress to anyone!

This dress is gorgeous in person and on camera. My only complaint was the length was a bit long, which I had read in reviews. I tried to use fashion tape to shorten it as someone suggested but it was very difficult and kept falling down in places. I still loved this dress, but would use strategically placed safety pins or a loose running stitch next time instead!

It appears that the dress has now been altered so it isn't so long. I wore this to a wedding last weekend and the first complement I got was "Wow...you are gorgeous". Definitely a must rent for your RTR girls!

The dress is fantastic! Fits true to size and very flattering on any body shape. It is very dressy and more shimmery and gold in person. I was over-dressed for a date night but the amount of complements that I got paid off.

Thank you so much for showing bachelorette photos! I'm looking for a dress for my party and this dress looks great will all the gear - pink sash, tiara, etc. Wasn't sure if the sequins would be too much with bright pink but I think you look so great! Can't wait to wear it.

I rented this dress for my bachelorette party which had a sequins theme. The dress is gorgeous in person and looks more pinky/gold than shown here. I wore it with nude pumps and gold dangly earrings. I got tons of compliments on it from both men and women and it was so sparkly! I loved it. The fit was pretty good; the only problem I had with it is that is that the top was a little big and I had to use a little fashion tape to keep it from exposing my bra. Otherwise, it was totally fantastic.

Love this designer, dress, and RTR. Wore it to a Taylor Swift concert, got complemented on it all night. Sparkled in the sun walking into the Staples Center, it was awesome. A little tichy after a while under the armpits, but not enough to bother.

I LOVE this dress, it looked amazing, it lit up the room with sparkles. I felt so special. The hem was a bit long and I normally wear a 2 but because of the reviews I got a 0 as the back-up and the 0 fit like a glove. It was hard to zipper but did not feel overly tight that I could not breathe. The color is pinker in person, very flattering on my lightly tanned skin.

I wore this dress for my big bachelorette night out in Vegas. It was super sparkly and it looked very pink, which was perfect for me! It came to a few inches above my knee so it wasn't a "sexy" length by any means. The v neck isn't nearly as deep as in the picture. The sequins do scratch a bit around the arm holes but nothing that I couldn't put up with for the night!

I wore this dress this weekend for my bachelorette party. I usually wear a 4, so I ordered a 2 and a 4 just in case. The 4 fit perfectly except for a little extra space in the boobs.. but I'm a B cup so that happens to me a lot. I wore a push-up bra and it was no big deal. Everyone loved the dress, and said it was flattering to my figure. I felt super comfortable. The sequins didn't scratch at all, and none fell off. It was a little formal (a friend told me I looked like Ms. Universe with my bachelorette sash) but I was the star of the party so it was totally appropriate. I would definitely recommend this for a cocktail or bachelorette party!

Perfect dress for a fun birthday night
I fluctuate between a 0 and 2 in regular retails stores like J.Crew and the Gap, so I had them send one of each in this dress. I ended up wearing the size 2, as the 0 was a little too snug to zip up. As some reviewers said, the sequins near the arm openings sometimes hit against your skin uncomfortably, but not enough to make me not want to wear this dress again! The dress hit lower on me than the model, probably about knee length. I was impressed that the sequins were not so flashy as to feel out of place in less formal locations (we went to a different locale after our main event). I got a ton of compliments everywhere I went. It draws attention while still feeling classy and classic, which I think is perfect! I can't wait to rent it again!

This dress was absolutely gorgeous. As other people have mentioned, the dress is a little pinker than the picture shows, and it can look almost golden in lower lights, but it is absolutely beautiful no matter what. It fit perfectly and, although I was a little worried that it might be a little too low cut, it was in fact perfect, revealing just the slightest amount of cleavage. It's just a gorgeous dress and I'd recommend it to anyone considering it.

I loved this dress! Rented it for my bachelorette party in Vegas and my only complaint is that I had to wear the obligatory sash, beads, etc and it covered this gorgeous dress. But I had to be a good sport and wear it all. I usually wear a 6 or an 8 in dresses but I ordered a 4 and a 10 because those were the only sizes left and surprisingly I could've worn either size. I ended up wearing the 4 and felt very comfortable in it. I think because the bottom half is not fitted in this style, it fit well. I'm smaller in the ribcage than the thighs. Overall, I'm very impressed with my first RTR experience and can't wait to rent again. I have to say though that I had a $40 coupon and would not pay much more than $50 to rent any dress, but that's just me.
